Hi, I am Helene-Marie.
The Founder of HM Collins Photography
WHO I AM
I’ve always loved taking pictures. I was that friend or family member who documented the picnic gathering or adventurous outing and turned these moments into mementos with a scrapbook or a slideshow to music.
I’ve also always been service minded. For years, I worked in customer service and health care, and was a stay-at-home mom to my three now-grown and teenage children. Then, through a process of discovery, I found I could pair my love of helping others with my passion for photography. After various classes and studies, I’m excited to provide you with the professional photos you deserve.
WHAT I DO
I love working with people, for their personal and business brand photography needs. Senior Portraits and Headshots are my specialty. Senior year is a big milestone and I am here to help you have fun creating memories. My goal is to provide the best portrait experience while capturing your true personality. You will also find me photographing couples, families and lifestyle shoots. I am inspired by the people I photograph and grateful for the opportunity to do so.
My interest and love for all aspects of being an entrepreneur, has led me toward a career in photographing Businesses. I have a natural eye for capturing the best qualities of a person, product or a beautiful space, and work with a wide range of professionals including: Authors, actors, speakers, business profesionals, interior designers, retail store owners, builders, realtors, bankers, mental health professionals, healthcare companies, health and wellness providers, and more—to provide professional images that tell the story of what they do, in order to attract business.
Photography is an intricate skill, and camera settings, aperture, and shutter speed are all things that go undetected in a good photograph. But I love continually learning about the ins and outs of this art and applying it to my photos.
So whether it’s a portrait or a business, I’ll help capture something that matters to you in the perfect light.
WHERE YOU CAN FIND ME
Though I’ve lived in Seacoast, NH for over a decade, I grew up in the Lakes region, specifically Moultonborough, where some of my family still resides. I know both areas well and am happy to travel within these special places in New Hampshire for your photography needs. You will also find me giving back to my community by volunteering my photography services to assist non profits including Yoga In Action, Girls On The Run and Womenade of Greater Squamscott who helps families in the community by providing short-term financial support.
